Richard V. Brenner, M.D., F.A.C.S.


I strive for surgical excellence, and timely/efficient recovery for my patients. I try to convey to each patient my compassion for them as they recover from surgery. In the office, hospital and surgery center, I use the best technology available, including minimally invasive, laparoscopic and robotic surgical equipment to ensure that I minimize the post-operative discomfort for my patients. I stay up-to-date with the latest surgical techniques through course and conference attendance, practice with surgical simulators and learn on-line with surgical webinars and forums. I participate in collaborative organizations that track surgical outcomes in an effort to achieve the best results attainable for every one of my patients.
